Howto configure the Linux kernel / drivers / scsi


SCSI device supportEdit

  • In general it is a good idea to enable 'SCSI device support even if you don't use scsi disks
    often cameras, USB drives, mp3 mplayers, etc. use scsi disk as the device's connection
    so enable: SCSI device support, SCSI /dev/proc support, and SCSI disk support



  • Option: SCSI
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SCSI device support
      If you want to use a SCSI hard disk, SCSI tape drive, SCSI CD-ROM or any other SCSI device under Linux, say Y and make sure that you know the name of your SCSI host adapter (the card inside your computer that "speaks" the SCSI protocol, also called SCSI controller), because you will be asked for it.
      You also need to say Y here if you have a device which speaks the SCSI protocol. Examples of this include the parallel port version of the IOMEGA ZIP drive, USB storage devices, Fibre Channel, FireWire storage and the IDE-SCSI emulation driver.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here and read <file:Documentation/scsi/scsi.txt>. The module will be called scsi_mod.
      However, do not compile this as a module if your root file system (the one containing the directory /) is located on a SCSI device.


  • Option: SCSI_PROC_FS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) legacy /proc/scsi/ support
    • depends on SCSI && PROC_FS
    • default y
      This option enables support for the various files in /proc/scsi. In Linux 2.6 this has been superseded by files in sysfs but many legacy applications rely on this.
      If unusure say Y.

"SCSI support type (disk, tape, CD-ROM)"

    • depends on SCSI


  • Option: BLK_DEV_SD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SCSI disk support
    • depends on SCSI
      If you want to use SCSI hard disks, Fibre Channel disks, USB storage or the SCSI or parallel port version of the IOMEGA ZIP drive, say Y and read the SCSI-HOWTO, the Disk-HOWTO and the Multi-Disk-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. This is NOT for SCSI CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here and read <file:Documentation/scsi/scsi.txt>. The module will be called sd_mod.
      Do not compile this driver as a module if your root file system (the one containing the directory /) is located on a SCSI disk. In this case, do not compile the driver for your SCSI host adapter (below) as a module either.


  • Option: RAID_ATTRS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) RAID Transport Class
    • default n
      Provides RAID


  • Option: CHR_DEV_ST
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SCSI tape support
    • depends on SCSI
      If you want to use a SCSI tape drive under Linux, say Y and read the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>, and <file:Documentation/scsi/st.txt> in the kernel source. This is NOT for SCSI CD-ROMs.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here and read <file:Documentation/scsi/scsi.txt>. The module will be called st.


  • Option: CHR_DEV_OSST
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SCSI OnStream SC-x0 tape support
    • depends on SCSI
      The OnStream SC-x0 SCSI tape drives can not be driven by the standard st driver, but instead need this special osst driver and use the /dev/osstX char device nodes (major 206). Via USB-storage and ide-scsi, you may be able to drive the USB-x0 and DI-x0 drives as well. Note that there is also a second generation of OnStream tape drives (ADR-x0) that supports the standard SCSI-2 commands for tapes (QIC-157) and can be driven by the standard driver st. For more information, you may have a look at the SCSI-HOWTO <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto> and <file:Documentation/scsi/osst.txt> in the kernel source. More info on the OnStream driver may be found on <http://linux1.onstream.nl/test/> Please also have a look at the standard st docu, as most of it applies to osst as well.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here and read <file:Documentation/scsi/scsi.txt>. The module will be called osst.


  • Option: BLK_DEV_SR
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SCSI CDROM support
    • depends on SCSI
      If you want to use a SCSI or FireWire CD-ROM under Linux, say Y and read the SCSI-HOWTO and the CDROM-HOWTO at <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. Also make sure to say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" later.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here and read <file:Documentation/scsi/scsi.txt>. The module will be called sr_mod.


  • Option: BLK_DEV_SR_VENDOR
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Enable vendor-specific extensions (for SCSI CDROM)
    • depends on BLK_DEV_SR
      This enables the usage of vendor specific SCSI commands. This is required to support multisession CDs with old NEC/TOSHIBA cdrom drives (and HP Writers). If you have such a drive and get the first session only, try saying Y here; everybody else says N.


  • Option: CHR_DEV_SG
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SCSI generic support
    • depends on SCSI
      If you want to use SCSI scanners, synthesizers or CD-writers or just about anything having "SCSI" in its name other than hard disks, CD-ROMs or tapes, say Y here. These won't be supported by the kernel directly, so you need some additional software which knows how to talk to these devices using the SCSI protocol:
      For scanners, look at SANE (<http://www.mostang.com/sane/>). For CD writer software look at Cdrtools (<http://www.fokus.gmd.de/research/cc/glone/employees/joerg.schilling/private/cdrecord.html>) and for burning a "disk at once": CDRDAO (<http://cdrdao.sourceforge.net/>). Cdparanoia is a high quality digital reader of audio CDs (<http://www.xiph.org/paranoia/>). For other devices, it's possible that you'll have to write the driver software yourself. Please read the file <file:Documentation/scsi/scsi-generic.txt> for more information.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here and read <file:Documentation/scsi/scsi.txt>. The module will be called sg.
      If unsure, say N.


  • Option: CHR_DEV_SCH
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SCSI media changer support
    • depends on SCSI
      This is a driver for SCSI media changers. Most common devices are tape libraries and MOD/CDROM jukeboxes. *Real* jukeboxes, you don't need this for those tiny 6-slot cdrom changers. Media changers are listed as "Type: Medium Changer" in /proc/scsi/scsi. If you have such hardware and want to use it with linux, say Y here. Check <file:Documentation/scsi-changer.txt> for details.
      If you want to compile this as a module ( = code which can be inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want), say M here and read <file:Documentation/modules.txt> and <file:Documentation/scsi.txt>. The module will be called ch.o. If unsure, say N.


"Some SCSI devices (e.g. CD jukebox) support multiple LUNs"

    • depends on SCSI


  • Option: SCSI_MULTI_LUN
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Probe all LUNs on each SCSI device
    • depends on SCSI
      If you have a SCSI device that supports more than one LUN (Logical Unit Number), e.g. a CD jukebox, and only one LUN is detected, you can say Y here to force the SCSI driver to probe for multiple LUNs. A SCSI device with multiple LUNs acts logically like multiple SCSI devices. The vast majority of SCSI devices have only one LUN, and so most people can say N here. The max_luns boot/module parameter allows to override this setting.


  • Option: SCSI_CONSTANTS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Verbose SCSI error reporting (kernel size +=12K)
    • depends on SCSI
      The error messages regarding your SCSI hardware will be easier to understand if you say Y here; it will enlarge your kernel by about 12 KB. If in doubt, say Y.


  • Option: SCSI_LOGGING
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) SCSI logging facility
    • depends on SCSI
      This turns on a logging facility that can be used to debug a number of SCSI related problems.
      If you say Y here, no logging output will appear by default, but you can enable logging by saying Y to "/proc file system support" and Sysctl support below and executing the command
      echo "scsi log token [level]" > /proc/scsi/scsi
      at boot time after the /proc file system has been mounted.
      There are a number of things that can be used for 'token' (you can find them in the source: <file:drivers/scsi/scsi.c>), and this allows you to select the types of information you want, and the level allows you to select the level of verbosity.
      If you say N here, it may be harder to track down some types of SCSI problems. If you say Y here your kernel will be somewhat larger, but there should be no noticeable performance impact as long as you have logging turned off.

  • Option: SCSI_SAS_ATTRS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SAS Transport Attributes
    • depends on SCSI
      If you wish to export transport-specific information about each attached SAS device to sysfs, say Y.


SCSI low-level driversEdit

    • depends on SCSI!=n


  • Option: ISCSI_TCP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) iSCSI Initiator over TCP/IP
    • depends on SCSI && INET
    • select CRYPTO
    • select CRYPTO_MD5
    • select CRYPTO_CRC32C
    • select SCSI_ISCSI_ATTRS
      The iSCSI Driver provides a host with the ability to access storagethrough an IP network. The driver uses the iSCSI protocol to transportSCSI requests and responses over a TCP/IP network between the host(the "initiator") and "targets". Architecturally, the iSCSI drivercombines with the host's TCP/IP stack, network drivers, and NetworkInterface Card (NIC) to provide the same functions as a SCSI or aFibre Channel (FC) adapter driver with a Host Bus Adapter (HBA).

compile this driver as a module, choose M here: themodule will be called iscsi_tcp. userspace component needed to initialize the driver, documentation,and sample configuration files can be found here:

  • Option: SCSI_AACRAID
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Adaptec AACRAID support
    • depends on SCSI && PCI



  • Option: SCSI_AIC7XXX_OLD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Adaptec AIC7xxx support (old driver)
    • depends on (ISA || EISA || PCI ) && SCSI
      WARNING This driver is an older aic7xxx driver and is no longer under active development. Adaptec, Inc. is writing a new driver to take the place of this one, and it is recommended that whenever possible, people should use the new Adaptec written driver instead of this one. This driver will eventually be phased out entirely.
      This is support for the various aic7xxx based Adaptec SCSI controllers. These include the 274x EISA cards; 284x VLB cards; 2902, 2910, 293x, 294x, 394x, 3985 and several other PCI and motherboard based SCSI controllers from Adaptec. It does not support the AAA-13x RAID controllers from Adaptec, nor will it likely ever support them. It does not support the 2920 cards from Adaptec that use the Future Domain SCSI controller chip. For those cards, you need the "Future Domain 16xx SCSI support" driver.
      In general, if the controller is based on an Adaptec SCSI controller chip from the aic777x series or the aic78xx series, this driver should work. The only exception is the 7810 which is specifically not supported (that's the RAID controller chip on the AAA-13x cards).
      Note that the AHA2920 SCSI host adapter is *not* supported by this driver; choose "Future Domain 16xx SCSI support" instead if you have one of those.
      Information on the configuration options for this controller can be found by checking the help file for each of the available configuration options. You should read <file:Documentation/scsi/aic7xxx_old.txt> at a minimum before contacting the maintainer with any questions. The SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>, can also be of great help.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called aic7xxx_old.

    • (on/off/module) DMX3191D SCSI support
    • depends on PCI && SCSI
      This is support for Domex DMX3191D SCSI Host Adapters.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called dmx3191d.


  • Option: SCSI_DTC3280
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) DTC3180/3280 SCSI support
    • depends on ISA && SCSI
      This is support for DTC 3180/3280 SCSI Host Adapters. Please read the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>, and the file <file:Documentation/scsi/dtc3x80.txt>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called dtc.


  • Option: SCSI_EATA
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) EATA ISA/EISA/PCI (DPT and generic EATA/DMA-compliant boards) support
    • depends on (ISA || EISA || PCI) && SCSI && ISA_DMA_API
      This driver supports all EATA/DMA-compliant SCSI host adapters. DPT ISA and all EISA I/O addresses are probed looking for the "EATA" signature. The addresses of all the PCI SCSI controllers reported by the PCI subsystem are probed as well.
      You want to read the start of <file:drivers/scsi/eata.c> and the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called eata.


  • Option: SCSI_EATA_TAGGED_QUEUE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) enable tagged command queueing
    • depends on SCSI_EATA
      This is a feature of SCSI-2 which improves performance: the host adapter can send several SCSI commands to a device's queue even if previous commands haven't finished yet. This is equivalent to the "eata=tc:y" boot option.


  • Option: SCSI_EATA_LINKED_COMMANDS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) enable elevator sorting
    • depends on SCSI_EATA
      This option enables elevator sorting for all probed SCSI disks and CD-ROMs. It definitely reduces the average seek distance when doing random seeks, but this does not necessarily result in a noticeable performance improvement: your mileage may vary... This is equivalent to the "eata=lc:y" boot option.


  • Option: SCSI_EATA_MAX_TAGS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"maximum number of queued commands"

    • depends on SCSI_EATA
    • default "16"
      This specifies how many SCSI commands can be maximally queued for each probed SCSI device. You should reduce the default value of 16 only if you have disks with buggy or limited tagged command support. Minimum is 2 and maximum is 62. This value is also the window size used by the elevator sorting option above. The effective value used by the driver for each probed SCSI device is reported at boot time. This is equivalent to the "eata=mq:8" boot option.


  • Option: SCSI_EATA_PIO
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) EATA-PIO (old DPT PM2001, PM2012A) support
    • depends on (ISA || EISA || PCI) && SCSI && BROKEN
      This driver supports all EATA-PIO protocol compliant SCSI Host Adapters like the DPT PM2001 and the PM2012A. EATA-DMA compliant host adapters could also use this driver but are discouraged from doing so, since this driver only supports hard disks and lacks numerous features. You might want to have a look at the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called eata_pio.


  • Option: SCSI_FUTURE_DOMAIN
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Future Domain 16xx SCSI/AHA-2920A support
    • depends on (ISA || PCI) && SCSI
      This is support for Future Domain's 16-bit SCSI host adapters (TMC-1660/1680, TMC-1650/1670, TMC-3260, TMC-1610M/MER/MEX) and other adapters based on the Future Domain chipsets (Quantum ISA-200S, ISA-250MG; Adaptec AHA-2920A; and at least one IBM board). It is explained in section 3.7 of the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
      NOTE: Newer Adaptec AHA-2920C boards use the Adaptec AIC-7850 chip and should use the aic7xxx driver ("Adaptec AIC7xxx chipset SCSI controller support"). This Future Domain driver works with the older Adaptec AHA-2920A boards with a Future Domain chip on them.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called fdomain.


  • Option: SCSI_FD_MCS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Future Domain MCS-600/700 SCSI support
    • depends on MCA_LEGACY && SCSI
      This is support for Future Domain MCS 600/700 MCA SCSI adapters. Some PS/2 computers are equipped with IBM Fast SCSI Adapter/A which is identical to the MCS 700 and hence also supported by this driver. This driver also supports the Reply SB16/SCSI card (the SCSI part). It supports multiple adapters in the same system.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called fd_mcs.


  • Option: SCSI_GDTH
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Intel/ICP (former GDT SCSI Disk Array) RAID Controller support
    • depends on (ISA || EISA || PCI) && SCSI && ISA_DMA_API
      Formerly called GDT SCSI Disk Array Controller Support.
      This is a driver for RAID/SCSI Disk Array Controllers (EISA/ISA/PCI) manufactured by Intel Corporation/ICP vortex GmbH. It is documented in the kernel source in <file:drivers/scsi/gdth.c> and <file:drivers/scsi/gdth.h.>
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called gdth.


  • Option: SCSI_GENERIC_NCR5380
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Generic NCR5380/53c400 SCSI PIO support
    • depends on ISA && SCSI
      This is a driver for the old NCR 53c80 series of SCSI controllers on boards using PIO. Most boards such as the Trantor T130 fit this category, along with a large number of ISA 8bit controllers shipped for free with SCSI scanners. If you have a PAS16, T128 or DMX3191 you should select the specific driver for that card rather than generic 5380 support.
      It is explained in section 3.8 of the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. If it doesn't work out of the box, you may have to change some settings in <file:drivers/scsi/g_NCR5380.h>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called g_NCR5380.


  • Option: SCSI_GENERIC_NCR5380_MMIO
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Generic NCR5380/53c400 SCSI MMIO support
    • depends on ISA && SCSI
      This is a driver for the old NCR 53c80 series of SCSI controllers on boards using memory mapped I/O. It is explained in section 3.8 of the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. If it doesn't work out of the box, you may have to change some settings in <file:drivers/scsi/g_NCR5380.h>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called g_NCR5380_mmio.


  • Option: SCSI_GENERIC_NCR53C400
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Enable NCR53c400 extensions
    • depends on SCSI_GENERIC_NCR5380
      This enables certain optimizations for the NCR53c400 SCSI cards. You might as well try it out. Note that this driver will only probe for the Trantor T130B in its default configuration; you might have to pass a command line option to the kernel at boot time if it does not detect your card. See the file <file:Documentation/scsi/g_NCR5380.txt> for details.


  • Option: SCSI_IBMMCA
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IBMMCA SCSI support
    • depends on MCA_LEGACY && SCSI
      This is support for the IBM SCSI adapter found in many of the PS/2 series computers. These machines have an MCA bus, so you need to answer Y to "MCA support" as well and read <file:Documentation/mca.txt>.
      If the adapter isn't found during boot (a common problem for models 56, 57, 76, and 77) you'll need to use the 'ibmmcascsi=<pun>' kernel option, where <pun> is the id of the SCSI subsystem (usually 7, but if that doesn't work check your reference diskette). Owners of model 95 with a LED-matrix-display can in addition activate some activity info like under OS/2, but more informative, by setting 'ibmmcascsi=display' as an additional kernel parameter. Try "man bootparam" or see the documentation of your boot loader about how to pass options to the kernel.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ibmmca.


  • Option: IBMMCA_SCSI_ORDER_STANDARD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Standard SCSI-order
    • depends on SCSI_IBMMCA
      In the PC-world and in most modern SCSI-BIOS-setups, SCSI-hard disks are assigned to the drive letters, starting with the lowest SCSI-id (physical number—pun) to be drive C:, as seen from DOS and similar operating systems. When looking into papers describing the ANSI-SCSI-standard, this assignment of drives appears to be wrong. The SCSI-standard follows a hardware-hierarchy which says that id 7 has the highest priority and id 0 the lowest. Therefore, the host adapters are still today everywhere placed as SCSI-id 7 by default. In the SCSI-standard, the drive letters express the priority of the disk. C: should be the hard disk, or a partition on it, with the highest priority. This must therefore be the disk with the highest SCSI-id (e.g. 6) and not the one with the lowest! IBM-BIOS kept the original definition of the SCSI-standard as also industrial- and process-control-machines, like VME-CPUs running under realtime-OSes (e.g. LynxOS, OS9) do.
      If you like to run Linux on your MCA-machine with the same assignment of hard disks as seen from e.g. DOS or OS/2 on your machine, which is in addition conformant to the SCSI-standard, you must say Y here. This is also necessary for MCA-Linux users who want to keep downward compatibility to older releases of the IBM-MCA-SCSI-driver (older than driver-release 2.00 and older than June 1997).
      If you like to have the lowest SCSI-id assigned as drive C:, as modern SCSI-BIOSes do, which does not conform to the standard, but is widespread and common in the PC-world of today, you must say N here. If unsure, say Y.


  • Option: IBMMCA_SCSI_DEV_RESET
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Reset SCSI-devices at boottime
    • depends on SCSI_IBMMCA
      By default, SCSI-devices are reset when the machine is powered on. However, some devices exist, like special-control-devices, SCSI-CNC-machines, SCSI-printer or scanners of older type, that do not reset when switched on. If you say Y here, each device connected to your SCSI-bus will be issued a reset-command after it has been probed, while the kernel is booting. This may cause problems with more modern devices, like hard disks, which do not appreciate these reset commands, and can cause your system to hang. So say Y only if you know that one of your older devices needs it; N is the safe answer.


  • Option: SCSI_IPS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IBM ServeRAID support
    • depends on PCI && SCSI
      This is support for the IBM ServeRAID hardware RAID controllers. See <http://www.developer.ibm.com/welcome/netfinity/serveraid.html> for more information. If this driver does not work correctly without modification please contact the author by email at <ipslinux@adaptec.com>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ips.


  • Option: SCSI_IBMVSCSI
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IBM Virtual SCSI support
    • depends on PPC_PSERIES || PPC_ISERIES

      This is support for the Initio 91XXU(W) SCSI host adapter. Please read the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called initio.


  • Option: SCSI_INIA100
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Initio INI-A100U2W support
    • depends on PCI && SCSI
      This is support for the Initio INI-A100U2W SCSI host adapter. Please read the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called a100u2w.


  • Option: SCSI_PPA
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IOMEGA parallel port (ppa - older drives)
    • depends on SCSI && PARPORT
      This driver supports older versions of IOMEGA's parallel port ZIP drive (a 100 MB removable media device).
      Note that you can say N here if you have the SCSI version of the ZIP drive: it will be supported automatically if you said Y to the generic "SCSI disk support", above.
      If you have the ZIP Plus drive or a more recent parallel port ZIP drive (if the supplied cable with the drive is labeled "AutoDetect") then you should say N here and Y to "IOMEGA parallel port (imm - newer drives)", below.
      For more information about this driver and how to use it you should read the file <file:Documentation/scsi/ppa.txt>. You should also read the SCSI-HOWTO, which is available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. If you use this driver, you will still be able to use the parallel port for other tasks, such as a printer; it is safe to compile both drivers into the kernel.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ppa.


  • Option: SCSI_IMM
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IOMEGA parallel port (imm - newer drives)
    • depends on SCSI && PARPORT
      This driver supports newer versions of IOMEGA's parallel port ZIP drive (a 100 MB removable media device).
      Note that you can say N here if you have the SCSI version of the ZIP drive: it will be supported automatically if you said Y to the generic "SCSI disk support", above.
      If you have the ZIP Plus drive or a more recent parallel port ZIP drive (if the supplied cable with the drive is labeled "AutoDetect") then you should say Y here; if you have an older ZIP drive, say N here and Y to "IOMEGA Parallel Port (ppa - older drives)", above.
      For more information about this driver and how to use it you should read the file <file:Documentation/scsi/ppa.txt>. You should also read the SCSI-HOWTO, which is available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. If you use this driver, you will still be able to use the parallel port for other tasks, such as a printer; it is safe to compile both drivers into the kernel.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called imm.


  • Option: SCSI_IZIP_EPP16
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) ppa/imm option - Use slow (but safe) EPP-16
    • depends on PARPORT && (SCSI_PPA || SCSI_IMM)
      EPP (Enhanced Parallel Port) is a standard for parallel ports which allows them to act as expansion buses that can handle up to 64 peripheral devices.
      Some parallel port chipsets are slower than their motherboard, and so we have to control the state of the chipset's FIFO queue every now and then to avoid data loss. This will be done if you say Y here.
      Generally, saying Y is the safe option and slows things down a bit.


  • Option: SCSI_IZIP_SLOW_CTR
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) ppa/imm option - Assume slow parport control register
    • depends on PARPORT && (SCSI_PPA || SCSI_IMM)
      Some parallel ports are known to have excessive delays between changing the parallel port control register and good data being available on the parallel port data/status register. This option forces a small delay (1.0 usec to be exact) after changing the control register to let things settle out. Enabling this option may result in a big drop in performance but some very old parallel ports (found in 386 vintage machines) will not work properly.
      Generally, saying N is fine.


  • Option: SCSI_NCR53C406A
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) NCR53c406a SCSI support
    • depends on ISA && SCSI
      This is support for the NCR53c406a SCSI host adapter. For user configurable parameters, check out <file:drivers/scsi/NCR53c406a.c> in the kernel source. Also read the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called NCR53c406.


  • Option: SCSI_NCR_D700
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) NCR Dual 700 MCA SCSI support
    • depends on MCA && SCSI
    • select SCSI_SPI_ATTRS
      This is a driver for the MicroChannel Dual 700 card produced by NCR and commonly used in 345x/35xx/4100 class machines. It always tries to negotiate sync and uses tag command queueing.
      Unless you have an NCR manufactured machine, the chances are that you do not have this SCSI card, so say N.


  • Option: SCSI_LASI700
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) HP Lasi SCSI support for 53c700/710
    • depends on GSC && SCSI
    • select SCSI_SPI_ATTRS
      This is a driver for the SCSI controller in the Lasi chip found in many PA-RISC workstations & servers. If you do not know whether you have a Lasi chip, it is safe to say "Y" here.


  • Option: 53C700_LE_ON_BE

  • Option: SCSI_SYM53C8XX_2
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SYM53C8XX Version 2 SCSI support
    • depends on PCI && SCSI
    • select SCSI_SPI_ATTRS
      This driver supports the whole NCR53C8XX/SYM53C8XX family of PCI-SCSI controllers. It also supports the subset of LSI53C10XX Ultra-160 controllers that are based on the SYM53C8XX SCRIPTS language. It does not support LSI53C10XX Ultra-320 PCI-X SCSI controllers; you need to use the Fusion MPT driver for that.
      Please read <file:Documentation/scsi/sym53c8xx_2.txt> for more information.


  • Option: SCSI_SYM53C8XX_DMA_ADDRESSING_MODE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"DMA addressing mode"

    • depends on SCSI_SYM53C8XX_2
    • default "1"
      This option only applies to PCI-SCSI chips that are PCI DAC capable (875A, 895A, 896, 1010–33, 1010–66, 1000).
      When set to 0, the driver will program the chip to only perform 32-bit DMA. When set to 1, the chip will be able to perform DMA to addresses up to 1TB. When set to 2, the driver supports the full 64-bit DMA address range, but can only address 16 segments of 4 GB each. This limits the total addressable range to 64 GB.
      Most machines with less than 4GB of memory should use a setting of 0 for best performance. If your machine has 4GB of memory or more, you should set this option to 1 (the default).
      The still experimental value 2 (64 bit DMA addressing with 16 x 4GB segments limitation) can be used on systems that require PCI address bits past bit 39 to be set for the addressing of memory using PCI DAC cycles.


  • Option: SCSI_SYM53C8XX_DEFAULT_TAGS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"default tagged command queue depth"

    • depends on SCSI_SYM53C8XX_2
    • default "16"
      This is the default value of the command queue depth the driver will announce to the generic SCSI layer for devices that support tagged command queueing. This value can be changed from the boot command line. This is a soft limit that cannot exceed CONFIG_SCSI_SYM53C8XX_MAX_TAGS.


  • Option: SCSI_SYM53C8XX_MAX_TAGS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"maximum number of queued commands"

    • depends on SCSI_SYM53C8XX_2
    • default "64"
      This option allows you to specify the maximum number of commands that can be queued to any device, when tagged command queuing is possible. The driver supports up to 256 queued commands per device. This value is used as a compiled-in hard limit.


  • Option: SCSI_SYM53C8XX_IOMAPPED
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) use port IO
    • depends on SCSI_SYM53C8XX_2
      If you say Y here, the driver will use port IO to access the card. This is significantly slower then using memory mapped IO. Most people should answer N.


  • Option: SCSI_IPR
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IBM Power Linux RAID adapter support
    • depends on PCI && SCSI
    • select FW_LOADER
      This driver supports the IBM Power Linux family RAID adapters. This includes IBM pSeries 5712, 5703, 5709, and 570A, as well as IBM iSeries 5702, 5703, 5709, and 570A.


  • Option: SCSI_IPR_TRACE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) enable driver internal trace
    • depends on SCSI_IPR
      If you say Y here, the driver will trace all commands issued to the adapter. Performance impact is minimal. Trace can be dumped using /sys/bus/class/scsi_host/hostXX/trace.


  • Option: SCSI_IPR_DUMP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) enable adapter dump support
    • depends on SCSI_IPR
      If you say Y here, the driver will support adapter crash dump. If you enable this support, the iprdump daemon can be used to capture adapter failure analysis information.


  • Option: SCSI_ZALON
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Zalon SCSI support
    • depends on GSC && SCSI
    • select SCSI_SPI_ATTRS
      The Zalon is a GSC/HSC bus interface chip that sits between the PA-RISC processor and the NCR 53c720 SCSI controller on C100, C110, J200, J210 and some D, K & R-class machines. It's also used on the add-in Bluefish, Barracuda & Shrike SCSI cards. Say Y here if you have one of these machines or cards.


  • Option: SCSI_NCR_Q720
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) NCR Quad 720 MCA SCSI support
    • depends on MCA && SCSI
    • select SCSI_SPI_ATTRS
      This is a driver for the MicroChannel Quad 720 card produced by NCR and commonly used in 345x/35xx/4100 class machines. It always tries to negotiate sync and uses tag command queueing.
      Unless you have an NCR manufactured machine, the chances are that you do not have this SCSI card, so say N.


  • Option: SCSI_NCR53C8XX_DEFAULT_TAGS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

" default tagged command queue depth"

    • depends on SCSI_ZALON || SCSI_NCR_Q720
    • default "8"
      Tagged command queuing is a feature of SCSI-2 which improves performance: the host adapter can send several SCSI commands to a device's queue even if previous commands haven't finished yet. Because the device is intelligent, it can optimize its operations (like head positioning) based on its own request queue. Some SCSI devices don't implement this properly; if you want to disable this feature, enter 0 or 1 here (it doesn't matter which).
      The default value is 8 and should be supported by most hard disks. This value can be overridden from the boot command line using the 'tags' option as follows (example): 'ncr53c8xx=tags:4/t2t3q16/t0u2q10' will set default queue depth to 4, set queue depth to 16 for target 2 and target 3 on controller 0 and set queue depth to 10 for target 0 / lun 2 on controller 1.
      The normal answer therefore is to go with the default 8 and to use a boot command line option for devices that need to use a different command queue depth.
      There is no safe option other than using good SCSI devices.


  • Option: SCSI_NCR53C8XX_MAX_TAGS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

" maximum number of queued commands"

    • depends on SCSI_ZALON || SCSI_NCR_Q720
    • default "32"
      This option allows you to specify the maximum number of commands that can be queued to any device, when tagged command queuing is possible. The default value is 32. Minimum is 2, maximum is 64. Modern hard disks are able to support 64 tags and even more, but do not seem to be faster when more than 32 tags are being used.
      So, the normal answer here is to go with the default value 32 unless you are using very large hard disks with large cache (>= 1 MB) that are able to take advantage of more than 32 tagged commands.
      There is no safe option and the default answer is recommended.


  • Option: SCSI_NCR53C8XX_SYNC
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

" synchronous transfers frequency in MHz"

    • depends on SCSI_ZALON || SCSI_NCR_Q720
    • default "20"
      The SCSI Parallel Interface-2 Standard defines 5 classes of transfer rates: FAST-5, FAST-10, FAST-20, FAST-40 and FAST-80. The numbers are respectively the maximum data transfer rates in mega-transfers per second for each class. For example, a FAST-20 Wide 16 device is able to transfer data at 20 million 16 bit packets per second for a total rate of 40 MB/s.
      You may specify 0 if you want to only use asynchronous data transfers. This is the safest and slowest option. Otherwise, specify a value between 5 and 80, depending on the capability of your SCSI controller. The higher the number, the faster the data transfer. Note that 80 should normally be ok since the driver decreases the value automatically according to the controller's capabilities.
      Your answer to this question is ignored for controllers with NVRAM, since the driver will get this information from the user set-up. It also can be overridden using a boot setup option, as follows (example): 'ncr53c8xx=sync:12' will allow the driver to negotiate for FAST-20 synchronous data transfer (20 mega-transfers per second).
      The normal answer therefore is not to go with the default but to select the maximum value 80 allowing the driver to use the maximum value supported by each controller. If this causes problems with your SCSI devices, you should come back and decrease the value.
      There is no safe option other than using good cabling, right terminations and SCSI conformant devices.


  • Option: SCSI_NCR53C8XX_PROFILE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) enable profiling
    • depends on SCSI_ZALON || SCSI_NCR_Q720
      This option allows you to enable profiling information gathering. These statistics are not very accurate due to the low frequency of the kernel clock (100 Hz on i386) and have performance impact on systems that use very fast devices.
      The normal answer therefore is N.


  • Option: SCSI_NCR53C8XX_NO_DISCONNECT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) not allow targets to disconnect
    • depends on (SCSI_ZALON || SCSI_NCR_Q720) && SCSI_NCR53C8XX_DEFAULT_TAGS=0
      This option is only provided for safety if you suspect some SCSI device of yours to not support properly the target-disconnect feature. In that case, you would say Y here. In general however, to not allow targets to disconnect is not reasonable if there is more than 1 device on a SCSI bus. The normal answer therefore is N.

  • Option: SCSI_SYM53C416
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Symbios 53c416 SCSI support
    • depends on ISA && SCSI
      This is support for the sym53c416 SCSI host adapter, the SCSI adapter that comes with some HP scanners. This driver requires that the sym53c416 is configured first using some sort of PnP configuration program (e.g. isapnp) or by a PnP aware BIOS. If you are using isapnp then you need to compile this driver as a module and then load it using insmod after isapnp has run. The parameters of the configured card(s) should be passed to the driver. The format is:
      insmod sym53c416 sym53c416=<base>,<irq> [sym53c416_1=<base>,<irq>]
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called sym53c416.

      This is support for the UltraStor 14F and 34F SCSI-2 host adapters. The source at <file:drivers/scsi/u14-34f.c> contains some information about this hardware. If the driver doesn't work out of the box, you may have to change some settings in <file: drivers/scsi/u14-34f.c>. Read the SCSI-HOWTO, available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>. Note that there is also another driver for the same hardware: "UltraStor SCSI support", below. You should say Y to both only if you want 24F support as well.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called u14-34f.


  • Option: SCSI_U14_34F_TAGGED_QUEUE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) enable tagged command queueing
    • depends on SCSI_U14_34F
      This is a feature of SCSI-2 which improves performance: the host adapter can send several SCSI commands to a device's queue even if previous commands haven't finished yet. This is equivalent to the "u14-34f=tc:y" boot option.


  • Option: SCSI_U14_34F_LINKED_COMMANDS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) enable elevator sorting
    • depends on SCSI_U14_34F
      This option enables elevator sorting for all probed SCSI disks and CD-ROMs. It definitely reduces the average seek distance when doing random seeks, but this does not necessarily result in a noticeable performance improvement: your mileage may vary... This is equivalent to the "u14-34f=lc:y" boot option.


  • Option: SCSI_U14_34F_MAX_TAGS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"maximum number of queued commands"

    • depends on SCSI_U14_34F
    • default "8"
      This specifies how many SCSI commands can be maximally queued for each probed SCSI device. You should reduce the default value of 8 only if you have disks with buggy or limited tagged command support. Minimum is 2 and maximum is 14. This value is also the window size used by the elevator sorting option above. The effective value used by the driver for each probed SCSI device is reported at boot time. This is equivalent to the "u14-34f=mq:8" boot option.


  • Option: SCSI_ULTRASTOR
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) UltraStor SCSI support

  • Option: SCSI_DEBUG
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) SCSI debugging host simulator
    • depends on SCSI
      This is a host adapter simulator that can simulate multiple hosts each with multiple dummy SCSI devices (disks). It defaults to one host adapter with one dummy SCSI disk. Each dummy disk uses kernel RAM as storage (i.e. it is a ramdisk). To save space when multiple dummy disks are simulated, they share the same kernel RAM for their storage. See <http://www.torque.net/sg/sdebug.html> for more information. This driver is primarily of use to those testing the SCSI and block subsystems. If unsure, say N.


  • Option: SCSI_MESH
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) MESH (Power Mac internal SCSI) support
    • depends on PPC32 && PPC_PMAC && SCSI
      Many Power Macintoshes and clones have a MESH (Macintosh Enhanced SCSI Hardware) SCSI bus adaptor (the 7200 doesn't, but all of the other Power Macintoshes do). Say Y to include support for this SCSI adaptor.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called mesh.


  • Option: SCSI_MESH_SYNC_RATE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"maximum synchronous transfer rate (MB/s) (0 = async)"

    • depends on SCSI_MESH
    • default "5"
      On Power Macintoshes (and clones) where the MESH SCSI bus adaptor drives a bus which is entirely internal to the machine (such as the 7500, 7600, 8500, etc.), the MESH is capable of synchronous operation at up to 10 MB/s. On machines where the SCSI bus controlled by the MESH can have external devices connected, it is usually rated at 5 MB/s. 5 is a safe value here unless you know the MESH SCSI bus is internal only; in that case you can say 10. Say 0 to disable synchronous operation.


  • Option: SCSI_MESH_RESET_DELAY_MS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...

"initial bus reset delay (ms) (0 = no reset)"

    • depends on SCSI_MESH

    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) 53C94 (Power Mac external SCSI) support
    • depends on PPC32 && PPC_PMAC && SCSI
      On Power Macintoshes (and clones) with two SCSI buses, the external SCSI bus is usually controlled by a 53C94 SCSI bus adaptor. Older machines which only have one SCSI bus, such as the 7200, also use the 53C94. Say Y to include support for the 53C94.

Note that all of the above SCSI controllers, except for the builtin SCSI controller on the Amiga 4000T, reside on the Zorro expansion bus, so you also have to enable Zorro bus support if you want to use them.


  • Option: OKTAGON_SCSI
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) BSC Oktagon SCSI support (EXPERIMENTAL)

      If you have an Atari with built-in NCR5380 SCSI controller (TT, Falcon, ...) say Y to get it supported. Of course also, if you have a compatible SCSI controller (e.g. for Medusa).
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called atari_scsi.
      This driver supports both styles of NCR integration into the system: the TT style (separate DMA), and the Falcon style (via ST-DMA, replacing ACSI). It does NOT support other schemes, like in the Hades (without DMA).


  • Option: ATARI_SCSI_TOSHIBA_DELAY
